The Best Sun Cream for Sensitive Skin

  • Those with sensitive skin can sometimes experience breakouts with use of regular sun protection.
  • Children can suffer from sensitive skin, but also need high SPF protection.
  • Just like skincare it is important to use suncare products that are specifically formulated for your skin type.
The Best Sun Cream for Sensitive Skin

How do you protect your skin when it's super sensitive and has a tendency to break out, especially with some sun creams which contain chemicals your skin really doesn't get along with?

Anthelios: sun protection designed for even the most sensitive skin types

A range of broad-spectrum protection suncare, the La Roche-Posay Anthelios range is specifically formulated for sensitive skin and tailored to your skin-type. Providing exceptionally high broad-spectrum protection, it is formulated not only to prevent sensitive skin from reacting in the heat and to sunlight, but also to soothe and treat symptoms such as redness, stinging and prickly heat.

What to use on children’s sensitive skin

Children, and babies in particular, have especially sensitive skin, which is why it's recommended to keep them out of the sun as much as possible. Highly water-resistant, La Roche-Posay Anthelios Dermo-Pediatrics Wet Skin Gel Lotion with SPF50+ protection, is easy to apply, non-greasy, non-sticky, and doesn't leave white marks when applied to the skin.

Is the texture of your sun cream causing skin sensitivity?

Just like blocked pores can lead to acne breakouts, smothering your skin in a dense, sticky sun cream that doesn't let it breathe can also lead to sensitive reactions. The Anthelios facial suncreams are specifically formulated for various skin types and therefore adapted to suit your skin, whether dry, oily or normal. Anthelios Anti-shine dry-touch gel-cream with its mattifying properties is far lighter for the skin, therefore perfect for those with more oily skin, whilst Anthelios Ultra Comfort Cream has an ultra-comfortable moisturising cream formula that protects and nourishes dry, sensitive skin.
